Breaking news of the horrible incident spread like wildfire on social media, and was reported by NollywoodSocial here and news about his successful surgery here.

Igwe 2Pac recently spoke with The Punch's Saturday Beats in an exclusive chat earlier in the week, where Charles Okocha recalled events leading to the tragedy and how doctors battled to save his life.

In Charles Okocha's own words:

“I stepped out of the wedding venue to receive a call and then walked into a bunch of fans that made some complimentary remarks. As I moved closer to acknowledge their love for me, a policeman who was around also walked to where we were standing and said that my movies always made him happy. He said as a mark of appreciation of my works and the respect he had for me, he would shoot into the air as a form of salute, even though I didn’t fancy the idea.

“The guy was very drunk and so when he corked his gun to shoot, it fell from his hand. Unfortunately, the gun had been programmed to shoot rapidly and sporadically. I was very close to him and before the gun dropped some bullets had hit me. I had to hold my intestine which was already out with my hands. It was a very horrifying experience. I did not get to the hospital till after an hour even with the way I was bleeding profusely.

“At the hospital, doctors brought out five bullets from my body. There was a bullet that was removed from my leg and I bless God that the bullet did not hit my bone because it could have been crippled. Three major surgeries have left me performed on me so far.

“Last week, after the stitches had been removed and I was due for discharge, my stomach suddenly burst open again, exposing all of my intestines. I was quickly rushed back into the theatre and I’ve been in the hospital ever since. It is a miracle that I am still alive,” he said.

If you are a Pastor, we ask that you keep Charles Okocha in your prayers, because even though the bullets has been successfully removed; no one knows what the after effect of the surgery may have caused or the damages the bullets left in his body.
